Well, it’s not snowing here in Savannah…not that it ever does…and we’re still wearing summer clothing for the most part, but it is finally beginning to look like Christmas. My neighbors have all been busy this week stringing up colored LED lights and putting reindeer and snowmen on their lawns. We haven’t put our lights up yet, but I’m hoping that on my husband’s next available day off, we can start decorating. I love this time of the year with all the lights and garland and month-long holiday music on 98.7 The River. It warms my heart and makes me feel festive. :)
I pulled my Christmas tree and all of my decorations out of the closet a few days ago and am now in the process of decorating. The tree is up and looks awesome, now I need to work on my A Christmas Story village. Every year “Santa” brings me a new Department 56 piece. Last year I finally received Ralphie’s House after asking for it two years in a row. The year before that, I was given the Bumpus House. This year I’m shooting for Cleveland Elementary School and Triple Dog Dare. Piece by piece I’m creating the most fabulous Christmas village ever, because let’s face it, anything associated with “A Christmas Story” is full of all kinds of win.
Now, if Santa would just work on that snow for me, I’d be a really happy girl this year. :)
